YINYANG Drop Chessboard / Go Chessboard

YINYANG Drop Chessboard
YINYANG Drop Chessboard

It always take us a lot of time to separate the black and white pieces after we finished a Go Chess game.Given this situation,we promote a design which can provide us a method to separate them quickly.After the chess game,we just need several steps to separate the pieces.Step 1:Pull out the drawer on one side.Step 2:Raise the other side for 40° and the white pieces will drop down to the drawer.Step 3:Then we just wipe the black pieces into the drawer on the other side.In traditional culture of China,the black represents the dark when the white is the symbol of brightness.And we call them Yin,Yang.All these steps just like a circulation.
